Templ J. A systematic approach to multiple inheritance implementation

« Abstract

Multiple inheritance is commonly believed to increase the expressive power of a programming language, but to slow down efficiency of message sends even in case of single inheritance. This paper shows that none of these arguments hold. First, a technique to express the effect of multiple inheritance in terms of single inheritance is described. Base on this technique an efficient implementation of multiple inheritance is constructed. The resulting implementation does not slow down single inheritance and, in case of multiple inheritance, is more efficient than widely used implementations.»
